B > BINATONE > Colour TV Game 4 plus 2 (model n° 01 / 4850)   


Binatone
Colour TV Game 4 plus 2 (model n° 01 / 4850)

This pong is one of the many Binatone systems. As its name indicates, it offers 6 games : 4 pong games (squash, squash practise, football, tennis) and 2 shooting games (target, shooting).

In order to understand how this system fits into the Binatone pong range, here is simplified list of the systems :

TV Master MK IV
TV Master 4 plus 2
TV Master MK 6
TV Master MK 8
TV Master MK 10

Colour TV Game
Colour TV Game 4 plus 2
Colour TV Game MK 6
Colour TV Game MK 10

The TV master serie are black & white pongs (first generation). The Colour TV Game 4 plus 2 system is the same as the Colour TV Game MK 6 except that the light gun is only optional while it is included in the MK6 package. Same marketing strategy for the TV Master 4 plus 2 and TV Master MK 6.

The two shooting games (and thus the optional lightgun) are also the only difference between the Colour TV Game 4 plus 2 and Color TV Game.

So how to differentiate a Colour TV Game 4 plus 2 from a TV Master 4 plus 2 ? Well first, the name... ;-) The underside and switches of the former are grey while those of the TV Master are orange. The Colour TV Game has also a small 'colour' logo next to its name (upper right).

The paddles are rather small, with one knob each, but are detachable and connected to the system through two small sockets. One interesting feature is that there is a switch to turn sound on / off (great !).

We need more info about this pong ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.

Does anyone know where I might be able to obtain a circuit diagram as I have been given one of these to see if I can get it working but without the diagram it is almost impossible
